also says you don't accept a mob invading a u.s. consulate in libya and killing our ambassador and three others. today mitt romney decided to bolt from decorum. >> simply put having an embassy which has been breached having protestors on the grounds having that embassy reiterate a statement effectively apologizing for the right of free speech is not the rice course for our administration. >> today on top of some scary dÉjÀ vu the president attacked for not speaking out more strongly not explaining to meet with the prime minister of israel more forcefully. it seems to be erupting into anti-americanism almost daily. the republicans hark ens back to this guy john mccain is much more interested in what it is saying about us guys, americans. he was kind enough to join us right now. i knew you knew the ambassador very, very well. your thoughts right now? >> he was a lovely man. he loved his country. he served in a diplomatic war. he went to benghazi while the fight was still going on. came in on a cargo airplane and lived in constant danger until it was over. he moved to tripoli an
on what amounts to a six month spending bill. included in that is continued aid to libya. will my next guest back it in republican congressman, michele bachmann. which way are you going? >>guest: i will not be able to give support for this bill today. >>neil: why not? >>guest: i cannot give support for it because we are at a very difficult time in our nation's history financially and unfortunately this has become the new normal. we pass a continuing resolution and it is a piecemeal way. we are not doing budgets. the senate has not for three years. we are at a point, each day, taking on a lot of water, $4 billion in debt i cannot do it. this is reality. we saw that the fed issued a qe3 today and what this will mean down the road is a lot of trouble because economies do recover. when the economy does report this will mean that interest rates will spike higher than they would, they will go up but they will spike more than they would. this is not a good way to go. i was the only member of congress a year ago that said that we should not raise the debt ceiling we need to do our work now. we
of the ambassador stevens and three other americans killed in libya arrived back on u.s. soil. the protests in more than a dozen countries. and growing. now, my guest says, civilization itself is under attack. you do have to wonder, the fact that not only is it spreading, but, it is going after major western nations. what is happening? >>guest: well, what we are seeing here, neil, is somewhat of a collapse of the current administration's policy and an extension of that is the major security failure because of the massive uprising in the countries. it is a clash of civilizations. >>neil: what is odd. it is sort of like the arab uprising in reverse. that was hopeful. that was the hope at time. this does not look hopeful. it is more ominous forces have taken over. what do you think? >>guest: well you are dead on and, unfortunately, there are thousands of people we can clearly see who are represents a complete ideological clash in western society. the truth, this is a security nightmare spilling way beyond what this administration thought was capable and a complete culture clash of islamist extremist a
it was actually a government holiday, all this as questions mount over the attack on the consulate in libya and conflicting comments from the white house. john mccain is here to weigh in on both. welcome, everyone, i am neil cavuto and this is the scene in pakistan today. not a great scene. police firing live ammunition at protesters, throwing rocks and it gets worst after torching a theater, 15 killed, dozens injured, the protesters were fueled by the antimohammed video that the president referred to when asked about the libya attack that left our arch and three other americans dead. >> what we have seen the last week or week and a half is something that actually we have seen in the past where there is an offensive video or cartoon directed at the prophet mohammed. this is, obviously, something that is used by an excuse by some to carry out inexcusable violent acts directed at westerners or americans. >>neil: that came on the heels therefore statement from white house press secretary jake carney and i quote, "it is self-evident that what happened in beach gaza was a terrorist attack, our e
to the middle east, particularly those in libya and elsewhere, betting on the moderates and that the good intentions and the good money behind it will pay off. we saw the same in mogadishu but it did not turn out that way. similar lessons now? >>guest: well, similar for sure in that it did not pay off over there and it would be tougher to achieve in mogadishu than it would have been in egypt, libya, et cetera. i will tell you that if this is the kind of reaction we get from the people just because they don't agree with a movie or whatever the reason was, they were looking for a reason, i think, personally, but if we are putting money to them and they burn down our embassy and kill our people, they do not deserve that money. >>neil: colonel, it affected 20 middle east capitals and beyond. this more than just an isolated libyan event and more than a cairo uprising. something is going on that seems to be bigger than either the administration is saying or admitting. what do you think? >> the fact that struck me from the beginning, neil, when the muslim brotherhood now has the president in egy
: the president believes the attack if libya was terrorism, why didn't he say it? why doesn't he say it? does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. >>neil: the president is declining to use the word "terror" but today the white house confirming it is the official view of the white house that deadly assault on our libyan embassy was just that, a terror attack. even the president libya expressing doubt that it had nothing to do with the anti-islam film. why is this good for the white house or good for the leader of white house but it is not good for the president of the united states? what do you mean? >>guest: well, neil, if you recall, when all the news broke, the establishment media jumped on mitt romney. the white house, in fact, went into a panic because they realized immediately
over. we bought the government under mubarak and now there is a new government, whether it is libya or egypt or syria later on, it will be the al qaeda that will take over so we don't benefit, israel doesn't benefit, the taxpayers don't benefit. it is a foolish policy. it will come to an end. the sooner the better. >>neil: the argument we hear, congressman, we step out, china steps in, russia steps in, all to our detriment, all to embodien iran and to embolden sinister moves to us. >>guest: they are smarter than that. they probably won't do it. if they do, i think the soviets and the russians had their fill of it when they were in afghanistan. they were stung badly. they wised up and left and went through the disintegration of the empire. china doesn't have this history. they are like a catalyst. they invest in iran and invest in the countries. they do not have the same characteristics we have had for 100 years of putting troops overseas and occupying countries and picking and choosing dictators. it is a possibility but unlikely. if it did, it would fail to them. if it fails for us,
'm talking about libya. what did the president know about increasing threats and when did he know it? inquiring politicians want to know and not just republican ones. democrat john kerry wants to get to the bottom of what u.s. authorities knew about escalating terror threats in libya. supposedly there were 20 cables warning the state department how to proceed at the embassy including pole from the late ambassador chris stevens himself why governor huckabee says this is escalating fast. when democrats want to know the chain of evens here, this goes beyond a political thing. >>governor huckabee: it does and it should. this is not about the politics of this election, this is about the integrity of the white house and whether or not we are going to stand by and allow our government to openly lie to us about why did chris stevens die? why did three other americans die with him? what did we know? when did we know it? why do we continue to blame a 13 minute youtube video when it was over didn't this was not a spontaneous mob. that was the official story that came from the white house and th
meet with the president from libya. to not meet with anyone but the people on "the view" sends a emergency it is more about politics. >>neil: i don't know the history of these things during the election years, maybe the entertainment media is so big today. he figured, and who am i to know, if i meet with one i have to meet with 11 others and i'm not going to meet with any. maybe that was the rationale. what do you think? >>guest: i think he was afraid to meet with any of them. he would be afraid of meeting with prime minister binyamin netanyahu because this would be a report they didn't get along. that impacts with jewish voters. he would meet with morsi and maybe not be able to be as hard as he would like and that impacts other people watching our relationship with egypt. any meeting he would have with anyone there could have been some risk something negative would come out so rather than meeting with anyone at all, go on "the view" and hope we can garner more votes. >>neil: i will get into the political questions with ed henry, but i want to raise where the political risk wou
